SECAF Webinar: Understanding and Negotiating Teaming Agreements
Webinar Event: Tuesday, February 25, 2020 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EST)
Protorae Law’s Government Contracts partner Devon Hewitt will present at the upcoming Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF) webinar discussing “Understanding and Negotiating Teaming Agreements” on Tuesday, February 25, 2020.
Teaming agreements are a staple of government contracting. For many businesses, teaming agreements are a gateway to federal business – if they are done right. This webinar will discuss the “tricks of the trade” in negotiating teaming agreements that work for a proposed prime contractor, a proposed subcontractor, a large business, a small business or some combination. Learn which terms should be included, excluded or modified in a teaming agreement in order to best position your company during a procurement and for success following the award of the prime contract.
